In need of encouragement
April 2, 2008 11:32pm CST
I just started my own virtual assistant business and I am, quite frankly, not getting any business. This is a something I know I could be successful at if I could only figure out who needs me and how to get them to believe it. I've tried to market locally and on the internet. Locally, I don't think people fully understand that what it is I offer is offered all over the world and often quite successfully. I feel my marketing on the internet is severly lacking - there are so many of us out there and so many of them do way more stuff than me. I am very good at what I do with the exception, obviously, of marketing myself. I am getting very frustrated. I do not want to go back to being an employee at a job I don't like. Call me weird, but I like to get paid for the time I actually work, not for the time I sit around and listen to gossip in an office. I need some encouragement.
